  1. Thanks everyone for the input. I have a feeling the hard part will be convincing the owner that it's worth about half of what he's selling it for. I did some more looking around today and didn't find much suitable in my area, so at the moment I'm still interested in the one posted. At which point should I just cut my losses and move on? Would it be a good deal at $7000, and if I can't get it to that much should I just move on and look at different options (such as shipping one as someone mentioned)? Thanks again
  2. Hey everyone! I'm brand new to the forums and have been looking around for the past year or so to get into the Z car community by finding a good project car. I found this one on consignment at a dealer about an hour and a half away from me and took a trip over to take some pictures and document it as well as possible. Unfortunately, the dealer didn't have time to get it on the lift to get good pictures of the underbody. The car has around 56k miles on what should be the original engine and transmission, but the dealer is also including a free 5-speed with the car. The owner is asking $14k for it, which I believe to be clearly over what it's worth. Before I go back more seriously I'd like to try to get you guy's help to determine how much the car is actually worth. The car looks to be mostly straight and mechanically good, panel gaps look uniform and the doors close well, so I don't have any reason to believe it's been wrecked in the past or anything. Apparently the car runs well, but I haven't had the opportunity to hear it for myself. My greatest concern lies in the rubber undercoating that might be masking the car rotting away. The car comes as is, it doesn't have the front bumper/anything else that's missing. The only thing included that's on the car is the 5-speed I mentioned earlier. My other concern is that water is still getting into the vehicle and it's currently outside, so every time it rains water gets in. There's about an inch of water sitting in the bottom of the spare tire compartment as well. If there are any questions you guys have that I could answer or ask the dealer to answer to help value the car, let me know. Thanks for the help everybody.
